Last fall, reports came out that LeBron James was in talks with Netflix to create an NBA-style documentary series similar to the show “Quarterback.”

For those unfamiliar, “Quarterback” followed three NFL quarterbacks — Kirk Cousins, Patrick Mahomes and Marcus Mariota — throughout the 2022 season.

Now, more information is coming out about the NBA docuseries, and it’ll feature a Sacramento Kings player.

According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, the first season will feature center Domantas Sabonis. Joining him are James, Celtics’ forward Jayson Tatum, Heat guard Jimmy Butler, and Timberwolves’ guard Anthony Edwards.

Charania added that filming is underway for the yet-to-be-titled series. James, who is an executive producer in HBO’s “The Shop” will team up with Barack Obama’s Higher Ground Productions and Peyton Manning’s Omaha Productions to produce the series. No release date has been announced.

On Tuesday, Domantas Sabonis recorded his ninth triple-double of the season. He currently leads the NBA in double-doubles (32) and rebounds (12.8).
